If you have the installation guide for your fridge the current draw should be listed in there. For the small 2.7cf Norcold in our 195RB current draw is 1.5amps at 120vac. Running that through an inverter would yield around 15amp draw on the 12V battery bank. If you happen to have a 3-way unit you could run directly off 12V. The install guide shows a 12-14amp draw for the 3-way 2.7cf model when running directly off 12V.

I will have 640W panels and 400Ah lithium batteries. If I convert the units correctly, 15 amps from 12V should not be that much for my system - the panels should be pumping volts into the system when I am towing, right?

This is only my speculation - I am picking up the trailer in two weeks and do not know how all would be working.
